This is best product for the price I've found in the current desktop riser selection. Lift mechanism is smooth and infinitely adjustable, keyboard/mouse tray is comfortable (that was my primary concern) and 2x23inch monitors fit no problem. Go with this product for minimal effort in setup and fits wide range of office environments. Only con is it looks bulky in the lowered position. Great quality overall.
Works great. Holds a lot of weight and has a lot of room. I've got my 5 year old Mac, my Macbook Air, and my iPad on it. It's also super stable. No wobble when typing on the key board.
My only reason for giving it 4 stars is that it doesn't sit flat on the desk. The whole thing "raises" your desktop about 5-6 inches. So, if you're desk is on the tall side and you don't plan to spend all your time standing, you will need to raise your chair significantly. Just pointing this out, as I didn't get it from any of the reviews.
I didn't want to get a full stand up desk because I had a nice work desk already, but I was tired of sitting all of the time. This stand was the perfect compromise. I added the dual monitor kit to mount 27 and 21 inch monitors I already had statically on the desk. The mechanism rises smoothly and the hight is good. I am only 5'7" and I like the height on the higher end of the spectrum, so I can see that this might not raise the keyboard up enough for taller folks. The monitor height is also adjustable after you have raised the platform itself, so the monitors will probably work for tall folks. Really happy with the addition and the flexibility it gives me.
Very nice desk, I was just disappointed that when it's all the way down (for the seated position) the keyboard tray does not go all the way to the desk as it seems to in the picture. There is a 3" gap between the top of my desk and the keyboard tray which makes the keyboard uncomfortably high when using it in the seated position (and I can't raise my chair any further without bumping my knees on desk and/or my feet are no longer on the floor). My fix is that I put the keyboard in my lap, and am considering an "under the desk" keyboard tray for when I am seated. Other than that it goes up and down smoothly, is very sturdy, and works well with 3 monitors attached by a triple-monitor clamp mount.
Every standing desk works slightly differently. I have had multiple people on my team use desks like this over the years and it seems that personal preference becomes the deciding factor. This one is my person favorite. It seems to have stronger springs than the others I have seen. It easily handles 2 monitors and still rises with ease. This desk rises almost directly up while some come forward a little. Once again it depends on person preference but I don't think you will go wrong with this. Pick up a standing pad if you are looking to convert, makes a big difference.
